The graphics & the storyline are great! BUT the game itself has a major problem... There is no special “power-up” “bomb” that can travel/float to a specific point that needs clearing... (Example) Homescapes has the paper airplane that automatically goes to the area that needs to be cleared. And Harry potters puzzles & spells has the key bomb that flies to certain areas.... Candy crush has the fish that floats to specific areas .... many of these games usually have some sort of tactic that pinpoints specific areas it needs to be cleared. Project makeover not having that specific kind of power up makes it very difficult to pass even a easy level, if there’s no special power up that can pinpoint and fly to the area that needs to be cleared you find that you will take many many turns trying to clear a spot that can’t be reached, when normally (in other similar games) you would be strategizing to make that specific Powerup bomb “key” “paper airplane” that can easily fly to the area that needs clearing to finish the level without waisting a large amount of turns that waists lives on a levels that’s really not even that difficult to pass! if you just had the opportunity to make the right tools needed ! (Disclaimer) I am new to project makeover, I am only on level 47, so maybe those certain power ups are available later in the game. But I would like the opportunity to strategize to make the certain power up bomb that I know I need to finish the level, and it’s very frustrating that that option is not given to me and so many waisted lives on a level that’s not even hard or challenging.
I have never written a review for a game but this one is so disappointing, I had to.
Cons: each new make over gets harder, sure. But there is no incentive to keep playing. The pay out stays the same while everything costs dramatically more each time. And I have to pay to undress the characters? Maybe if the pay out increased a little with each person, I wouldn’t mind but it doesn’t. I’m also not comfortable with undressing the characters either. Personally, I had no idea this was a connect 3 game. The way it’s advertised, I thought you got a budget and tried to spend within your means, which I think I would prefer to the connect 3. You also don’t get many options to choose from (pick 1 of 3) and they aren’t even good choices. And don’t get me started on the gems. The only way to get gems is after the reveal (which you also have to use coins for) and it’s only like 300 gems. Which can only buy you the first 5 extra moves if you need them. Anything else is like 700 + gems which is just bananas. You don’t get enough for it to cost that much lol. You’d end up spending so much of your real money just to make this game barely worth playing which makes it less worth playing.
Pros: Mildly entertaining stories.
This game is just not worth it.
This game is set up to get you to buy power ups. Yes, it's a game, kind of like bejeweled, where you are able to earn coins and points to buy makeover items (from clothes to furniture). I thought it was a makeover app, that it'd be fun - and it is, in a silly, mindless way. Problem is, as you go up in levels (I'm on 129), it becomes nearly impossible to beat a level without powerups/boosters - which you have to literally buy, because there are no opportunities earn them outside of standard play. Yes, some powerups occur during play, when you match four or five, but it's rarely enough to actually beat the level. I’ve played the same level 25x, and still failed to beat it - meanwhile, the game repeatedly suggested I buy powerups to win. I don't mind being beat, but it’d be nice to have a better chance. The occasional bone they throw at me, like a rare booster or some gems, are very scarce. I’d like to see them make the win/lose more balanced. I refuse to buy boosters for every level...
I had suspicions that this game would be pay-to-play or bombard the player with ads. It looked like a classic misleading ad, “select x item”, but for once, the advertisement on another app was pretty true to the game.
Satisfying animations, cute stories, good writing, very nice reveal animation, levels are as you’d expect from other matching games, difficult yet possible levels (I’m at lvl 102 and haven’t used my power-ups more than once or spent money), nice character design, tactful approach (not putting people down for their looks or wanting to change them), does not contain many ads at all, clothing is very affordable with in-game currency
Really just needs an expansion, two more options when picking clothing items would be nice, ability to view an ad for an extra life would also be a nice addition.
Project Makeover is a really good game so far, very enjoyable. However, I have some issues with it.
So, first of all, the very first makeover was a little iffy because they removed the girl’s glasses and you can’t give her a long hairstyle, which is a little weird. It’s not really that big of a deal, but I don’t understand why these fashion games always remove characters’ glasses. Just a weird thing.
My biggest issue is that I’m only on level 28 and it’s already dang near impossible to complete. Why do the levels get so difficult this early in the game? I think that the developers should really consider making the levels easier, because this is just ridiculous.
Otherwise, it’s a very nice game so far, but I don’t know if I’ll play for much longer.
This game is pretty fun, and it’s actually exactly as advertised. So you do get to do makeovers on people and buildings. It’s a classic match 3 game to earn coins, which is fine. The levels are challenging and fun, but you only get 5 hearts at a time. And each heart takes 20 minutes to regenerate. You can easily lose the same level within 5 turns, and then have to wait an hour to retry. Very frustrating and annoying. Also, as you level up, each makeover item costs more and more coins, so you can’t really do much with the makeovers unless you’re insanely good at beating the levels. Naturally, it’s all just a ploy to get you to pay real money for diamonds to have more lives. Probably going to be deleting this soon. Fun but not worth it.
Please understand that we are all born different. With that being said, there was some characters who seemed unhappy at first and then all of a sudden they get their makeover and they’re happy. That’s not always true with everyone.
Also please stop making the levels unbeatable. If that’s the case, don’t limit the tries to 5 lifelines. Especially when you can barely acquire the purple crystals to refill. And then on top of that, the boosters are expensive. It was fun at first, but also noticed that you get charged to remove items. That’s really sketchy and crooked. We spend more coins doing that. Not fair. I feel like this game is headed in the wrong direction to stealing money.
ALSO WHY IS EVERYONE STUCK ON LEVEL 290?!
Before you start reading this I’m not tying to be a hater I’m just trying to get my opinion out there.
The games are sooooo hard at level 30 and you don’t have enough moves to finish. Like one time I was almost finished but there was only one more move so I couldn’t finish. That was so frustrating. Another thing is that when you start the makeover for more people everything gets more expensive and then you have to play but when you waste all your lives over one level I have to wait again. If your at the end of this rant I just wanted to say again that I’m not trying to be a hater I’m just getting my opinion out there. Other than all of that I think the game is fun wish there were more updates but fun.
I’m on the 3rd client (Lv 56 of bejeweled-ish game), and I need more coins to remodel her kitchen (replace roof), so to get more coins I have to win a bejeweled-ish game (each game is 300 coins). I only get 5 lives every two hours. I cannot win for the life of me. In order to win, I’d have to purchase lives, scissors, diamonds, etc.. Without those tools it’s almost impossible for me to win... It designed to make the player PAY in order to win the bejeweled-ish games to get more coins to complete the makeovers/remodels.
Other than that, it’s fun...
I won’t pay, and I may just delete the game if I can’t win these next levels without paying...
I thought this game might have been developed by vapid, unoriginal rip-off artists and I was right. Please stay away from games such as this that bear the underlying message of women needing to present physical perfection in order to feel any sense of esteem. Be your best self, whatever that means to you. Games like this glorify appearance as the only thing that matters about a woman and it’s a toxic notion that I hoped we were moving away from. At it’s core, it’s a candy crush ripoff wrapped in misogyny. Stay away and develop some actual skills that will lead to your own measure of personal success.
